Les Delzer Teapot design

I am working on a design for a teapot. I plan on making it in a tulip inspired shape with a spout that is somewhat "s" shaped and will be attached near the bottom of the teapot.  Having some design problems with the spout but I think I am close to getting it figured out. I want to make a spout form out of a slightly tapered hollow wax mold. The spout can be attached and the pot can be put in an oven or under a heat lamp after it is dry so that I can melt the wax out before the pot is put in the bisque kiln. The cup bodies are made and ready for trimming and handles.

I am a potter and hand builder.  I enjoy creating tea pots and look to teapot designers for inspiration and styles.
I hope to be able to build a tea pot and cups as my class time is limited.
